Uttarakhand Chamoli Disaster News: Heavy destruction due to glacier breakdown in Uttarakhand, more than 150 missing, Army, SDRF; Rescue operation of ITBP.

The destruction of the glacier in Uttarakhand's Chamoli district on Sunday morning has caused huge havoc. The disaster in the Nandadevi Biosphere area destroyed the nearly 13 MW Rishiganga Power Project on Rishiganga and the 520 MW Tapovan Vishnugad Hydro Project on Dhauliganga. About 150 people, including workers and personnel working in them, are missing, while the bodies of seven persons have been recovered. Five local people are also involved in the missing. The exact causes of this natural phenomenon will be known only after receiving the report of experts, but the reason for this is being said to be an immediate possibility of a lake being formed there.

According to eyewitnesses, the number of missing persons may be higher than anticipated. Rescue and relief operations are in progress. 15 of the 50 workers trapped in the two tunnels were rescued safely. The bridge over the Indo-China border was washed away in this tragedy. This has cut the contact of about half a dozen villages. Here, Dhauliganga, Rishiganga, and Alaknanda were stirred up from Chamoli to Bijnor due to the debris that accompanied the debris. Taking immediate steps, the administration alerted them by emptying settlements along the Ganges and tributaries. As precautionary water was stopped from Tehri Dam, as well as the movement was stopped on many routes including Badrinath Highway. Traffic was smooth afternoon when the situation was somewhat normal.

Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat canceled his program in Dehradun and immediately left for the scene of the incident. He visited the affected areas Tapovan and Rani.
